Spain 2018: Cursa dels Nassos, 31 Dec

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3R-LPLbmurQ&t=2s What did you do for New Year's Eve? Honestly I took a time-out, away from all the Christmas stuff and the pre-New Year's Eve chaos. I booked a cheap flight to Barcelona (also taking a time-out from the cold weather) and signed up for their Cursa dels Nassos aka The race of the Noses. … Continue reading Spain 2018: Cursa dels Nassos, 31 Dec

Italy 2018: Verona (Half)Marathon, 18.11.2018

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB72MrawWYw&t=9s Some people say I travel too much. I say it's all about priorities and time&money management. I work in order to live, just like everybody else, and I live because I feed my passions. Being alive means so much more than surviving.  I choose to live in a world of marathons and vacations. It's … Continue reading Italy 2018: Verona (Half)Marathon, 18.11.2018

Romania 2018: Gorun Trail, Mercheasa 27.10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cu5Wa4F3VXA&feature=youtu.be Ever since I saw this race I knew it has to be on my bucket list. So I signed up for the longest race (30km) without planning how will I even get there. I just knew I will find a way. And so I did. I'm always excited when there's a race I've never been … Continue reading Romania 2018: Gorun Trail, Mercheasa 27.10

Slovenia 2018: Red Bull 400, Planica

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkm829ZUtEc&t=20s Have you ever watched a video or something and dreamed you could do that someday? This was how I first heard of Red Bull 400 race: I watched a trailer and felt in love on the spot. It looked so fun and easy, that clearly had to be a catch. So 3 years … Continue reading Slovenia 2018: Red Bull 400, Planica

Romania 2018: Retezat Marathon, Rausor skijump

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0JYzffTMZY&t=20s Once again, I took part of what I've sworn I would never do. This race made me drop dead last year and I really meant when I wrote: ".. is not for everyone, definitely not for me. While I was climbing the rocks and praying for the finish line, I swore to myself that … Continue reading Romania 2018: Retezat Marathon, Rausor skijump

Romania 2018: Rodnei Skyrace, 21st July (Maramures county)

https://youtu.be/Y1DUlaYGMt4 Do you know the  "running your age on your birthday" cliche? Well, I unintentionally almost did it. I ran the age I had one day before my birthday. Or like normal people would explain it: I ran 26k on my last day at 26. Coincidence: Rodnei Skyrace took place this year on 21st of … Continue reading Romania 2018: Rodnei Skyrace, 21st July (Maramures county)

Romania 2018: Bate Toaca Marathon, Ceahlau Vertical Race

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOZ22gqVY00 This was about to be my first (almost) marathon, a 38k skyrace. Neither was planned to happen or pictured it would be like this, but there I was: with my brand new rain jacket and the recommended equipment, staring at the falling rain, after deciding to participate 3 days before. That feeling when you … Continue reading Romania 2018: Bate Toaca Marathon, Ceahlau Vertical Race

Romania 2018: Retezat Skyrace Intersport, Custura Peak version, 16th June

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDqf0RioUP4 "It might be the same race, but the way you feel is slightly different. Still as beautiful, but different" I was saying in my previous article about this race (click here) Between angels and insects again, this is my 4th time at Retezat Skyrace and I wanted to add some spices. I added the … Continue reading Romania 2018: Retezat Skyrace Intersport, Custura Peak version, 16th June

Romania 2018: Bichigiu Halfmarathon, 9th June

This is about a race I decided to join 2 days before. I had no plans for the weekend and I started googling races nearby. I found Bichigiu Halfmarathon in Bistrita, a fund rising race for a family, 2h away from Cluj. One post on facebook about a ride there and done. My weekend was … Continue reading Romania 2018: Bichigiu Halfmarathon, 9th June

Brasil 2018: Wings for Life Rio de Janeiro

https://youtu.be/e5hZDj0mUCE Well look at that..I crossed the ocean again and ended up in Rio de Janeiro. HOW did that happen? Oh that's right: I bought a plane ticket because I wanted to run the Wings for Life World Race on a different territory.   P.S. This was last year, Florida: https://runtheworld.blog/2017/05/08/florida-2017-wings-for-life-world-run-sunrise-fl/ Each time the month of May … Continue reading Brasil 2018: Wings for Life Rio de Janeiro
